This is the ultimate manual for students and families approaching the direct medical (BS/MD) admission process. Inside the book, you'll find expert answers and advice to all your questions, including:

An updated list of every direct medical program in the U.S., including all 90 BS/MD programs and 149 BS/DO programs
